11-Jul-2021 -- While driving on US Highway 160 from northeastern Arizona to Durango, Colorado, I passed about 1 mile northwest of this Degree Confluence Point. I pulled off at the entrance to a large quarry - 0.98 miles from the point. It was a hot Summer day; even at 6pm, the temperature was 104 F (40 C)! So, rather than attempt a 2+-mile round-trip hike (of dubious legality) in such conditions, I decided instead to fly my drone over the point. (The Ute Mountain Tribe might own this land, but they don’t own the airspace above it.)

Judging from my drone video, this point appears to be quite scenic. Just to the South (across the New Mexico state line) runs the San Juan River. And an impressive-looking eroded cliff face lies to the North.

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
